Billions of Dollars Spent to Deny Climate Change

The Campaign to Fight Action on Climate Change Is Backed by $1 Billion a Year in Covert Donations

Climate deniers may be a minority, but they’re organized — and they have a massive donor base backing them up.

That’s the conclusion reached by a report published Friday in the journal Climactic Change, which The Guardian calls the “first extensive study into the anatomy of the anti-climate effort.” It found that the campaign to discredit climate change runs upward of $1 billion a year, largely funded by conservative billionaires who work through secretive funding networks.
